Wisdom Tooth Removal

If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth or one that emerges at an incorrect angle can be painful and cause infections, crowding, and other dental issues. Surgical tooth removal for troublesome wisdom teeth reduces oral health risks and eliminates pain and suffering.

A wisdom tooth extraction is more complicated than a regular tooth extraction. Waratah Dental Centre can assist you with wisdom tooth extraction. Our wisdom teeth specialists employ cutting-edge dental technology to evaluate issues and remove impacted wisdom teeth without causing damage to your other teeth.

When do you need a wisdom tooth removal specialist?

Wisdom tooth issues can be detected early during a routine check-up with your dentist or if you come to see us because you’re experiencing pain or other symptoms. The following are some of the most common reasons for wisdom teeth removal:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth
  • Partially erupted wisdom tooth
  • Oral infection via wisdom tooth

What is a Wisdom Tooth?

The average adult mouth has 32 teeth, four of which are wisdom teeth (also called third molars). These are the last teeth to emerge from the gums and are found at the back of the mouth. This normally occurs between the ages of 17 and 25, but it can occur at any moment.

Some people do not obtain all of their wisdom teeth, and not all wisdom teeth create difficulties. You may only suffer little discomfort if there is enough space in your mouth for the tooth to fit and come through normally.

Your dentist may offer wisdom teeth removal surgery as a remedial or preventive measure if these teeth are causing issues.
